WW1 Letters from the Front

Twelve thousand New Zealand soldiers died in World War 1. The mementoes of one soldier represent those who were not able to leave anything behind to tell of where, when and how they died.

Tales from Te Papa is a fascinating series of mini-documentaries showcasing many of the exciting, wonderful and significant objects held in our national museum.

Tales from Te Papa was commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
